Date: First week Nov 2023

Why: Raise money for Children’s Cancer treatment

The cause

Originally motivated by a personal aspiration, my journey took a profound turn when my wife bravely faced cancer. In the face of adversity, the priority of raising funds for charity, and supporting those in dire need, became an absolute mission.

During discussion with my wife she stated, "the only thing that could have been worse would be if one of our children had been unlucky enough to have contracted the disease." Her unwavering strength and stoic mentality inspire me daily and have also opened my eyes to the abundance of blessings in our lives. This realization fueled my determination to make a positive impact, and my heart led me to support the Al Jalila Foundation, with a particular focus on assisting children battling terminal or life-threatening cancer.

In the spirit of making a difference, I am committed to reaching out to the public, providing this donation link and relevant information, so that together, we can directly support this worthy cause. Let us unite to bring hope and joy to those children and families facing unimaginable challenges, and through our collective efforts, let us create a brighter future for those in need.

Your contribution, whether big or small, holds the potential to make a significant impact. By joining hands in this noble endeavor, we can bring about a positive transformation in support families who are in financial stress. This cause will assist the life of a suffering child and family.
